The first narrow lock is right in the city centre by the Commendatory Museum but the traffic does not even know it is there.
The city is soon left behind and the countryside starts to take over once again.
We stopped for the night at Tibberton where a friend who was on business in the area came to stay the night. A meal was had in the Speed the Plough Inn with another drink in the Bridge Inn. It was nice to see Pete again after all these years and thanks for the occasional comment on the blog posts
We only went on the level pound through Dunhampton and it’s tunnel the next day passing Hanbury where there are plenty of moored boats and a boatyard that are close to the junction with the derelict Droitwich canal.
